WE’RE LOOKING at taking short breaks in Irish hotels that will take our four-legged hound. There are more than I expected to find.
The Twelve Hotel in Barna is the Georgina Campbell Pet Hotel of the shear 2021. It offers a specially designed pet menu.
The Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore is the closest pet-friendly resort to us. We’ve seen dogs on the terrace overlooking the sea with their owners in the Cliff House.
The Mustard Seed Country House in Adare is where we recommend our American friends stay when they depart via Shannon. Dogs can stay in suites that open to the garden but they cannot run around the rest of the hotel.
Ashford Castle is our favourite November venue during the annual Congregation meet-up. The 350 acres include lovely walks along the river.
